Over 100 Hoosiers applied to participate in the accelerator program. The 36 participants (locations mapped below) that were invited are preparing to expand their creative work with an entrepreneurial approach.
“Fifty-seven percent of the creative workforce in Indiana is self-employed, far exceeding the national average of 20 percent. Helping these Hoosiers be successful in their careers not only benefits them, but also strengthens the communities in which they live and work.
We’re intending that this program will help retain some of the best and brightest creative workers in Indiana.”
